I apologise for asking a question which has doubtless been posed many times,
but I am new to Outlook Express.
I would be grateful if someone would explain how to munge my email address,
or point me to a site where I can find the instructions.

Tools/Accounts/Properties of your News account. General tab. Change your
email there.

Many thanks for your help, I hope my disguised address now shows as
me@privacy.net.

Something like this would be fine, Bryan -
bryan.jones5@bt(nospam)internet.com

bryan.(getlost)jones5@(remove to emailme)btinternet.com

Or anything you like that is not valid. DON'T omit putting something
after the @ otherwise all spam will actually still go to btinternet.com

It does, the only problem with that is that www.privacy.net is a valid
website, so when someone tries to email you, it will forward to
wildcard@privacy.net
See my other response in this thread.
